Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free English Muffins

What a treat…Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free English Muffins with my favourite topping…homemade Strawberry Jam.

A Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free English Muffin with homemade Strawberry Jam

Oh so yummy! Crispy on the outside with a soft, chewy, craggy inside…this adaptation of an English Muffin surpasses anything purchased in a package at the grocery store!

I couldn’t resist trying to adapt another one of Canadian Living Magazine’s December 2012 ‘Griddle Me This’ recipes…English Muffins. Click here for the original recipe.

I replaced the warm milk with Natur-a Soy Beverage (for a soy free version use Natur-a Rice Beverage), the melted unsalted butter with canola oil and the egg with 1 tbsp of flax meal mixed with 3 tbsp of water that has been refrigerated for at least 15 minutes to set. (add the egg as in the original recipe)

A bit time consuming…but when there are no other options for an allergy friendly English Muffin…one finds the time. Perfect for the weekend!

Who wouldn’t want to wake up to the smell of a perfectly toasted Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free English Muffin before heading off to school/work?

I surprised the boys after school with the smell of my first batch of Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free English Muffins cooking on the stove top and baking in the oven…my timing was perfect!

Matthew perfectly pried open his Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free English Muffin with a fork and spread it with a layer of Vegan Becel Margarine.

He savoured every bite.

Michael enjoyed his spread with Vegan Becel Margarine with the addition of a drizzle of his favourite topping…local honey.

Andy enjoyed his toasted Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free English Muffin for dessert…slathered with Vegan Becel Margarine and homemade Strawberry Jam. “This is really good!”, he exclaimed with a note of surprise in his voice.

“This would be awesome as a breakfast sandwich!”, he announced excitedly. As Michael is allergic to eggs…perhaps a Peameal Bacon Sandwich?

Delicious straight out of the oven yet perfectly wonderful toasted the next morning for breakfast, snack, or even dessert!

Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free English Muffins are yet another great option for my teenaged son who arrives perplexed at the breakfast table every morning as to what to eat along with his Dairy Free Hot Chocolate.

P.S. Between the Dairy, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Crumpets and the English Muffinsthe English Muffins were the favourite. Michael is already hinting for me to bake up another batch!

P.P.S: The link to the Canadian Living Magazine recipe for English Muffins is missing a couple of important paragraphs in their directions. Below are the missing paragraphs that start after the 1 1/2 hour rest period.

“Mix baking powder with 1 tbsp water; stir into dough. Heat griddle or cast-iron skillet over medium heat; brush with some of the oil.  Sprinkle with some of the cornmeal.  Drop dough by scant 1/4 cup onto griddle, leaving 1 inch (2.5 cm) between each.  Cook until bottoms are browned, 7 to 8 minutes.

Brush each top with oil and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp cornmeal.  Flip and cook until browned, 7 to 8 minutes.  Repeat with remaining dough.”

Tip: Michael toasted his Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free English Muffin whole…then pried it open to reveal a warm interior perfect for his toppings. He also tried toasting his English Muffin sliced.

Andy toasted his Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free English Muffin whole, without any slicing at all…he just spread the Vegan Becel Margarine and homemade Strawberry Jam right on top.

Michael agreed that his father’s technique was the tastiest! Preferring honey to the jam.

Enjoy!

Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Sugar Cookies Are A Hit!

Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Sugar Cookies represented Matthew’s Scottish heritage…my father’s side of the family…for his contribution to his geography class’s Cultural.

Packaged in an old St. Michael’s Scottish Shortbread tin…they were a huge hit!

Matthew and I spent an evening ‘painting’ melted Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips on half of the Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Sugar Cookies. Click here for the recipe.

While we waited for the chocolate to dry…Matthew helped me bake the other half of the Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Sugar Cookie dough into his favourite Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Chocolate Chip Snowballs!

The Toronto Star 2012 Cookie Calendar Countdown: Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Shortbread Cookies

The Toronto Star’s 2012 Day 16 Cookie for the Cookie Calendar Countdown is no ordinary Shortbread Cookie…this recipe has a heritage.

Not only was Cathy Kehoe’s grandmother, Mary Ethyl Hare, creator of this Brown Sugar Shortbread Cookie but she was also the Private Secretary to R.S. McLaughlan, founder of General Motors. As I live in a neighbouring city of General Motors Canada…I felt it was fitting to whip up a batch. Click here for the original recipe at The Toronto Star.

I enjoyed the caramel taste the brown sugar lends to the cookie. I also prefer my shortbread to be a little more browned than most…just like my mom…so I made sure to bake some a little longer.

I adapted the recipe to be dairy free by replacing the butter with Earth Balance Buttery Vegan Sticks (for a soy free recipe use Earth Balance Soy Free Natural Buttery Spread). I cut the recipe in half and found that I needed to up the temperature to 350 F in order to bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes…depending on the size of the cut out and the thickness of the dough.  (Not sure if it was a misprint to preheat the oven and bake the cookies at 300 F)

I hope you are all enjoying my adaptations…any favourites so far?

The Toronto Star’s Day 12 Cookie Calendar Countdown: Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free ‘Sugar Plum Oat Fairy Cookies’

I was sooo excited to see The Toronto Star’s Day 12 Cookie Calendar Countdown Cookie…Jae Steele’s Gluten-Free Thumbprint Cookies…a cookie that was already dairy and egg free!

Love the name…’Sugar Plum Fairy Cookies’…plum jam is one of my favourites!

I knew this was a cookie I definitely wanted to try. Click here for the original recipe from The Toronto Star.

Unfortunately, I had forgotten how hard it would be to find brown rice flour let alone find one that was free of my son’s allergens…dairy, egg, sesame and peanut/tree nuts. I had no such luck…so I opted for oat flour.

Gluten, Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free ‘Sugar Plum Oat Fairy Cookies’

Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free 'Sugar Plum Fairy Cookie'

Combining three of my favourite flavours…cinnamon, oats and plum jam…I loved them!

In the end, I did need to adapt Jae’s recipe…I needed to increase the oat flour to 2 1/2 cups…it was still a bit wet and sticky but much more easily manageable. I also switched the nutmeg to ground ginger as a personal preference. I baked the cookies for 10 minutes, then indented them with my thumb and added the 1/2 tsp of plum jam and baked them for a further 6-8 minutes. I baked half the recipe at 350 F in the same manner as the above with similar results.

Who does not love the combination of cinnamon, oats and chocolate!

Try sprinkling in Enjoy Life’s Chocolate Chips for a kid friendly option!

Tip 1: For those that can tolerate wheat free oats…I found Chateau Cream Hill Estates product, Lara’s Whole Grain Oat Flour. Right on the front of the package it reads, “FREE OF: Wheat, Barley, Rye Triticale, Spelt and Kamut.” On the side panel, is an advisory stating that “Current scientific literature suggests that the majority of people with celiac disease can tolerate eating limited amounts of pure and uncontaminated oat flour…” ending with “Please check with your doctor and/or dietician before introducing oats into your diet.” Click here for a link to their website to read more about their products.

Tip 2: One can always make their own oat flour by processing whole oats in a food processor until a fine ground.

Tip 2: Incidentally, finding the Greaves Plum Jam was not hard for me to find…MacMillans Orchards in Ajax sells many varieties of Greaves products. My personal favourite plum jam, as well as my mother’s, is Mirabelle Plum by St. Dalfour. Their no sugar added jams are only sweetened with concentrated grape juice and are gluten-free.

I made some specifically for my mother to enjoy over the holiday season using St. Dalfour’s Mirabelle Plum Jam.

I will have to tuck them away to keep me from eating them!

P.S. Have you been following along with Jennifer Bain’s Cookie Calendar Countdown in The Toronto Star? Have you tried any of the cookies? What types of cookies entice you to bring out the bakeware? Would you consider adapting a recipe to suit your food allergens or do you prefer to buy prepackaged allergen friendly baked goods? Would love to hear from you!

The Toronto Star’s 2012 Cookie Calendar Countdown: Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free ‘100 Good Cookies’

I have to admit…everything about the Toronto Star’s 2012 Day 9 Cookie Calendar Cookie grabbed my attention.

For starters, the name itself…’100 Good Cookies’…piqued my interest.

Secondly, there were the interesting ingredients…both butter (or non-dairy alternative such as Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks or Earth Balance Soy Free Buttery Spread) and vegetable oil are required, cream of tartar, as well as a fun mix of oatmeal, rice krispies and coconut.

Thirdly, once again the timing of this recipe is stellar! Ever since both the boys tested negatively for coconut on their allergy skin testing, I have been looking for a recipe to introduce coconut…bingo!

Attention:  Anaphylaxis Canada does not include coconut as a tree nut, although they can cause allergic reactions. Therefore, consult with your allergist. Click here for a link to Anaphylaxis Canada’s list of top food allergens.

However, the actual selling point for me was the story…I love a recipe with a good story!

The recipe for 100 Good Cookies was sent in to the Toronto Star by Joyce Stephenson of Oakville. “Here is my favourite cookie,” the article states. “It is not fancy, not particularly Christmas-y, not exotic-but this recipe makes the best cookies you will ever taste. Every time I make them, people just gobble them up and want the recipe.”

Sold!

I adapted the original recipe to meet my boys’ food allergies…I replaced the butter with Earth Balance Vegan Sticks (for a soy free recipe use Earth Balance Soy Free Buttery Spread), and the egg with 2 tbsp of water added just before the canola oil and an extra 1/2 tsp baking soda to the flour mixture. Click here for the original recipe in the Toronto Star.

After baking up a few sheets of cookies, I tried one. I felt it was missing something…pure vanilla. I added about 1 1/2 tsp of pure vanilla to the remaining batter…they still needed something. Matthew and I both couldn’t taste the coconut, so I added a bit more coconut to some of the batter…both Matthew and I agreed we liked this version the best. Michael could not tell the difference…he liked them both.

My taste testers (with no food allergies), Victoria and William, enjoyed them…even Victoria who is not a coconut fan!

Topped with dab of Dairy Free Vanilla Icing and sprinkled with toasted coconut…

Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free '100 Good Cookies'

…creates a festive touch for Christmas!

Tip 1: Next time, I would add 2 tsp of pure vanilla and at least another 1/2 – 3/4 cup of unsweetened desiccated coconut.

Tip 2:  I made the cookies slightly more than 1 tsp and baked the cookies for approximately 10 minutes.

The Toronto Star’s 2012 Cookie Calendar Countdown: Day 3: Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Date Drop Cookies

My BFF, Anne, is here visiting from Calgary…one thing we have in common is a love for dates.

It was serendipity when I read The Toronto Star’s Day 3 Cookie Calendar Cookie was Geoff Fleming’s Great-Grandmother’s family recipe from Germany…Date Drop Cookies. Click here for the original recipe at The Toronto Star.

“Oh, you have to make them!”, exclaimed Anne. So we did!

Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Date Drop Cookies

Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Date Drop Cookies

Oh my gosh…delicious! Each one is a Ittle nugget of yumminess!

I replaced the butter with Earth Balance Vegan Sticks (for a soy free version replace butter wit Earth Balance Soy Free Buttery Spread ), the egg with 1/4 cup cinnamon applesauce and omitted the walnuts.

“Aren’t you glad I made you make them”, Anne announced. “Oh my, yes!”…Anne knows me only too well!

Unfortunately, I could not interest the boys…my husband, Andy, on the other hand, couldn’t keep his hand out of the ‘proverbial cookie jar!’ He justified himself by stating, “But they’re so small”!

If you love dates as much as we all do…this is a must try recipe…sure to please those with or without dairy, egg, soy and/or peanut/tree nut allergies!

My parting gift for Anne…

If you are wild about dates…you may want to try my Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Date Squares that I made Anne last year. Click here for the recipe.

Tip:  Next batch will be made with whole wheat flour…I think it will complement the richness of the dates similar to my Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Date Squares.

My Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Gingerbread Men Are Legendary

While I wait to work out the kinks in my blog…this will be a link less and picture less post…I thought I would recount a conversation I had with Michael yesterday after school. It pertains to my previous post…Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Gingerbread Men.

Apparently, my Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Gingerbread Men are legendary!

For the past few days, Michael has been bringing in a few Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Gingerbread Men  to school to enjoy at lunch. I had made a batch this past weekend to bring to a Christmas Party…I packaged a few for the children of our hostess.

Michael’s Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Gingerbread Men were spied by his fellow grade school friends…they were deemed legendary!

Michael’s grade school friends all grew up on my Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Gingerbread Men…I baked them in all kinds of shapes for all kinds of occasions throughout their grade school years.

How sweet to think that my Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Gingerbread Men were so coveted!

One friend, in particular, waited patiently for Michael to bring the cookies out of his lunch bag in anticipation that Michael would share…he did.

As I looked in to the cookie container sitting on the counter, I noticed there were only two small Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Gingerbread Men left…I mentioned this to Michael.

Michael peered up at me…with his boyish grin, that would melt any girl’s heart, made a request…”Do you think you could make another batch?”

Guess I know what I will be doing this weekend! :)

How about you…will you be busy with some holiday baking? What are the favourites in your household?

P.S. Even my friend, Anne, that was just here visiting, requested the recipe for my Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Gingerbread Menthey truly are loved by all that try them!

The Toronto Star’s 2012 Cookie Calendar Countdown: Day 1: Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Diwali Chai Snickerdoodle

So excited…Jennifer Bain, Toronto Star Food Editor’s 2012 Cookie Calendar Countdown has begun. Click here to learn more.

Day 1 was Ajitha Cyriac’s ‘chai inspired cookies’ she adapted from a Snickerdoodle recipe to please her four kids. Click here for her original adapted recipe in the Toronto Star.

I further adapted her adaptation to please my own boys’ food allergies.

I replaced the butter with Earth Balance Vegan Sticks, (for a soy free version use Earth Balance Soy Free Buttery Spread) replaced the eggs with 1/2 tsp of baking soda added to the dry ingredients and 2 tbsp of water added along with the pure vanilla and omitted the pistachios.

The timing was perfect…I had a houseful of hungry boys still around from Matthew’s birthday sleepover party…eager to try cookies.

After a lunch of leftover pizza…the boys tried one. Matthew liked them…Michael made a face after the first bite…Carson thought they had a nice buttery aftertaste and William thought they would be more suited to adults as they were not very sweet.

That evening, Andy and I had the pleasure of attending a Christmas party at our friends house. Our hostess has two boys who are also not too fond of ‘Indian sweets’ as Ajitha was quoted in the Toronto Star.

I packaged up the Dairy, Egg, and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Diwali Chai Snickerdoodle Cookies to bring as part of my hostess gift.

She was thrilled to receive her special hostess gifts.

In addition to the Dairy, Egg, and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Diwali Chai Snickerdoodle Cookies, I decided to bake some kid friendly cookies that I know both my boys love at Christmas time…Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Gingerbread Men.

Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Gingerbread Men

One can never go wrong with Gingerbread Men…they are irresistible.

Four packages of Dairy, Egg, Soy and Gingerbread Men Cookies

Therefore, I made up 4 packages as there was another family attending the party with their two girls. Their mother was pleasantly surprised!

I am looking forward to adapting more of Jennifer Bain’s Cookie Calendar Treats as the month continues. Stay tuned!

Have you started your holiday baking? What are your favourite family go-to holiday cookies? Are you following along with The Toronto Star’s Cookie Calendar Countdown?

Happy 14th Birthday Matthew!

Happy 14th Birthday Matthew!

Matthew's 14th birthday

Just love the ‘pizzaz’ of sparklers!

Matthew celebrated with his friends on Friday night…he had a pizza/sleepover party with 3 of his closest friends.

I ordered pizza from Pizza Nova…love their link to Allergy Information under Nutrition. Click here for a link.

Too full on pizza…they enjoyed a slice of my Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Chocolate Cake later in the evening.

Tonight’s ‘Birthday Dinner’ is Andy’s famous Chicken Wings …as requested from Matthew…and Fries. Followed by the official rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ for the birthday boy with any leftover Dairy, Egg, Soy and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Chocolate Cake!

P.S.  I am off to pick up my BFF, Anne, in Toronto…she flew in from Calgary over the weekend. I am looking forward to spending a few days catching up, doing a little window shopping and just hanging out.

Anne has arrived just in time to celebrate Matthew’s birthday with us all tonight and will have the opportunity to catch one of Michael’s hockey games on Tuesday night…lucky girl!

Update: While in Toronto, Anne and I stopped in at The Cupcake Shoppe. I have always wanted to visit…all their cupcakes are peanut/tree nut free. Click here to view their FAQ’s page.

Matthew is a chocoholic…the Double Chocolate Cupcake was chosen. When the guy serving us heard this was a special birthday cupcake…he added the sugary birthday cake topper.

Matthew loved the surprise…he enjoyed the cupcake…despite, in his words, “the icing was store bought sweet.”

Happy 14th  Birthday Matthew!

Pulled Pork Sandwiches On Dairy, Egg, Soy, Sesame and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Buns

This weekend was all about hockey, hockey, hockey!

International Silver Stick Tournament 2012

My boys were super excited that their cousin, Lukas’s hockey team was in town for the Silver Stick Tournament. My brother and nephew arrived Thursday night to be well rested for the first game on Friday.

As it is not every day that their cousin is in town for a hockey tournament…first one ever…the boys were picked up at school after their third period. They both scarfed down a quick-lunch before we headed over for the first game…Nana arrived just in time to head over along with us all.

Matthew, Andy, Michael and Nana at Lukas's hockey tournament

What a game…they won!

With two games per day…revolving around lunch and dinner…a little bit of planning out our allergy friendly meals was in order.

Friday night’s dinner was Spaghetti With Ground Turkey Sauce with Dairy, Egg, Soy, Sesame and Peanut/Tree Nut Free French Stick…crowd favourites! Both were made Friday morning to leave me free to head to the first game. (The other half of the dough was made into 4 sub buns… Michael made a quick ham and lettuce sub to bring along to the game.)

After filling our bellies full of spaghetti, we all headed to the evening game. Another great game and a win…although Nana felt there were again, too many penalties.

Saturday morning had me walking in our first snow of the season to the grocery store. I had pre-ordered a boneless pork shoulder for Pulled-Pork Sandwiches on Dairy, Egg, Soy, Sesame and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Buns I had planned for Saturday night’s feast…another one of my boys’ favourites and a crowd pleaser!

I found the Slow-Cooker Pulled-Pork recipe from the December 2006 issue of Martha Stewart Everyday Food Magazine. Click here for the original recipe.

For this meal, I used a 5 lb boneless pork shoulder and doubled the rest of the recipe. When the meat was finished, I removed all the excess fat, as well as any fat from the cooking liquid. Sometimes I add the extra ketchup at the end…this time I only added 1/2 of the recommended amount…perfect!

I adapted the recipe for Dinner Rolls from my original Black and Decker All-In-One Deluxe Breadmaker recipe booklet. Matthew’s favourite for the Pulled Pork. Michael prefers his Dairy, Egg, Soy, Sesame and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Sub Buns.

Dairy, Egg, Soy, Sesame and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Dinner Rolls

Dairy, Egg, Soy, Sesame and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Dinner Rolls

1 2/3 cups Natura Enriched Rice Beverage
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tsp fine sea salt
4 1/3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp yeast

Measure ingredients and add to bread maker in the order listed above.
Press for dough setting.
When complete, divide dough in to 12 balls.
Place in a 9 by 13 inch casserole dish which has been sprayed with canola oil.
Cover and let rise for at least 30 minutes.
Uncover and spray with canola oil.
Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes.
Cool on cooling rack until ready to split open and fill with the Pulled Pork.

Enjoy!

There was enough left over for sandwiches the next day for lunch!

Lukas’ team went on to win both games on Saturday! Semi-Finals here we come!

Everyone was up early Sunday morning for the big game…they won! Lukas’s Minor Atom Team made history…this is the first time since 1988 that their division had made it to the finals!

Team parents had hit the dollar store for all kinds of noise makers…the crowd was wild for this final game!

We were not disappointed…the team went on to win 6-1! Way to go Silver 7!

Lukas a Silver Stick champion

Congratulations Lukas! Bell Cup here we come!
